"The Hut-Sut Song (a Swedish Serenade)" is a novelty song from the 1940s with nonsense lyrics. Leo V. Killion, Ted McMichael and Jack Owens wrote the song in 1941. The first and most popular recording was by Horace Heidt and His Musical Knights. A 1941 Time Magazine entry suggests the song was probably a creative adaptation of an unpublished Missouri River song called "Hot Shot Dawson". The story told in the song is that of a boy (and later a girl) who play hooky from school and spend their days fishing and dreaming by the riverbank, until their schoolteacher finds them and, to prevent the incident from happening again, "plant(s) poison oak all along the stream." The children end up back at school. To explain why the words bear no resemblance to actual Swedish language, the song notes that the boy didn't know any Swedish and that the nonsense words were simply ones the boy made up to go along with the melody he heard. The chorus goes in part:
Hut-Sut Rawlson on the rillerah and a brawla, brawla sooit.
